Okay, this is crazy good. Think lasagna, but made with spaghetti noodles instead. Thin spaghetti noodles, actually, or vermicelli. A couple of beaten eggs are tossed in with the cooked noodles (along with grated Parmesan, yum!) and layered just the way you would if you were using lasagna noodles. The egg helps bind the noodles in place so you can easily cut out even rectangles to serve without them falling apart.
Trying to think of fun things to make with our Easter ham leftovers, my mind kept playing an ear worm from Dr. Seuss’s homage to picky eaters, Green Eggs and Ham. I do not like them Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham. You can’t blame Sam-I-Am’s friend. The forest green ham and eggs in the book don’t look entirely appetizing. But what if we added one letter and a couple commas to the dish? So instead of “green eggs and ham” we have “greens, eggs, and ham”? This is a combination that anyone could love, especially in a grilled cheese sandwich with Gruyere. We just layer slices of ham, a fried egg, some Gruyere cheese, and for greens, baby spinach leaves between two slices of rye bread. Grill them up with a little butter, and presto! Greens, eggs, and ham grilled cheese sandwich.
